Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2007 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 212007

Passat 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Pirelli 235/40R18 tires on a brand new 2007 Volkswagen Passat (oem tires) developed a sidewall bulge (no excessive speeding, no potholes, and no curbs encountered). In less than 4,000 miles, the tire developed sidewall bubbles. Many others report the same problem with these model tires (four seasons P6) having soft sidewalls that can rupture, however pirelli has not been at all willing to remedy the problem by replacing the tires. They claim road damage, however there is no road damage to found on the tire, or anywhere else on my vehicle. Had I been at high speed, this could have been fatal if the tire(s) were to rupture. These tires are dangerous.
